    Piezo, from the Greek to squeeze, are xtals that produce an electrical charge when vibrated or squeezed,used for ignition of gas flames,or sound sensors.

    sorry
    This time i forget... :)
    i read the articles and found that it is used for generating ultrasonic frequency by applying voltage.
    but any one had done this and give me some reference.
